Catch you later. With so many wrestlers and personalities on the WWE roster, it can be difficult to keep track of what everyone is doing. There are only so many spots available for all of those people and sometimes WWE needs to leave a few people off of the shows. That seems to be the case again on Monday Night Raw, as one prominent name is going on the shelf.

WWE has announced that MVP has suffered a broken rib and will be out of action for an undisclosed amount of time. The injury took place on Monday when Randy Orton took MVP out with an RKO on the floor. There is no word on why MVP is being taken off of television or when he will be back. MVP has been serving as Bobby Lashley’s manager for the last year plus.

MVP has been pretty great at what he does. Check out his time with Lashley:

The New Day vs. Bobby Lashley & MVP: Raw, July 5, 2021

MVP approaches Braun Strowman with a suggestion: Raw, May 10, 2021

MVP absolutely loses it on R-Truth: Raw Talk, Jan. 11, 2021

Opinion: I’m not sure why MVP is being taken off of television, but there is always the chance that it is just a way to advance the storyline of Lashley losing the WWE Title. MVP has been one of the best things in all of WWE over the last year plus and he’s going to be missed for the time being. It should be interesting to see how he is brought back, which hopefully comes sooner than later.

What do you think of MVP? How should he be brought back to television? Let us know in the comments below.
